Our mission is to help people with learning disabilities and autism into paid work.
We do this through our Supported Work Training Programme, finding Supported Employment and Supported Apprenticeship opportunities, and continuing to support both our trainees and their employers throughout their career.
We also run the Little Gate Rangers club for children aged 8 to 18. This gives kids a wonderful opportunity to grow and learn, while having great fun and making friends. It also provides valuable respite time for families.
Our support for families continues once their children have reached adulthood, through our Parent Forum.

How it all started
As Claire and David Cordell’s daughter approached adulthood, they began to realise that there was a gulf between the opportunities available to their daughter and those offered to her twin brother.
Claire and David’s daughter has a learning disability.
In 2013 Claire and David founded Little Gate, with a vision to increase the opportunities available to adults with learning disabilities and autism.
Today the Little Gate charity works tirelessly to find fulfilling, supported, paid work for people in this situation.
